Roses - Should I Prune Again?

I pruned these two roses in the winter to about knee to hip height. They've recently put on a lot of new growth but I'm concerned they are getting too tall. I remember last summer the stems were not strong enough to hold some blooms and they flopped a bit, which wasn't a good look. I thought my pruning in winter would have been enough... but should I cut them down a bit again so they bush out a bit? Or is this a big no no? I do not know the variety.
This is not a great photo, but here they are after pruning on 31st January:
I thought this was quite a hard prune... but obviously not.
I fed all the roses in the garden (have more than 10) with a rose feed from Wilko about 2 weeks ago. This one:
That was my first time ever feeding roses so I hope I didn't go overboard.
Okay. So you mean in the winter, right? Here are some more photos, if it helps identify them..
Thanks. I will remember to do this!
Here's a couple of recent photos:
Thanks for the advice.
Oh and whilst weeding the other day I found the original label for the white rose. It is called 'Prosperity' and is a 'Hybrid Musk'.
..as they've done in this photo here..
